TUCSON - In this raw video clip, we hear two opposing viewpoints on the Pima County GOP's decision to raffle a Glock handgun to raise funds for their party.
Jeff Rogers, the chairman of the Pima County Democratic Party, believes the prize is "stunningly insensitive," given that Jared Loughner allegedly used the same make of Glock to shoot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in the head, and kill six people on January 8.
Interim Pima County GOP Chairman Mike Shaw says he never expected this type of reaction. He says the party has raffled guns in past years without controversy, and in fact, this pistol was a leftover prize never claimed by last years' winner.
Watch both Tucson political leaders sound off on this issue in this raw video clip, and tune in to News 4 Tucson at 5 p.m. for the full story.
